until 4 pm on Wednesday...
Clear skies were the rule overnight with light south winds reported.
Temperatures at sunrise ranged from 45 to 50 degrees. During the
day, plenty of sunshine prevailed giving us sunny skies.
Temperatures at 245 pm ranged from the lower and middle 70s and
winds were southwesterly in nature ranging from 10 to 20 mph.
Low pressure and its associated cold front will pass through the
Quad State region overnight. As it does, we will see a good chance
of showers and thunderstorms tonight and early on Wednesday. The
wind gradient associated with the low will still be tight enough on
Wednesday to keep the winds up for much of Wednesday. Sustained
winds of 25 to 30 mph are expected with gusts up to 50 mph not out
of the question. Sharply colder air will come in quickly as
temperatures drop into the upper 30s and lower 40s throughout the
Unseasonably cold weather will continue into Thursday, but a gradual
warming trend is expected through the first part of the weekend as
high pressure takes control. Our next chance of rain will hold off
till the latter part of the weekend.
